I installed the newest version of Security Suite yesterday - I had last year's on previously, which was uninstalled using mpcr. It is version 13 with viruscan 9. The viruscan now is taking a long time to complete. It has been scanning for over 6 1/2 hours and has only scanned 400,000 files/70%. Previously, it was done scanning in approx. 3 hours.
Is this new version a lot slower, or is there something wrong with this installation?
ps. As I was registering and writing this message, the scanner suddenly jumped from approx. 70%/400k files to done/442k files. How is that possible to take 6 1/2 hours/70% and then jump to done/442k files? 70% of 442k files is 300k files.
Sorry your 1st go at this forum was not to your liking we seem to have missed the post. We are volunteers here and have only a limited time to answer questions.
That said did you solve your issue at all?
Mine takes 4 hrs or so for a similiar quantity of files. I usually scan at a time the pC is quiet and omit zip files (once I comfirm they are clean) from further scans. Did you have different settings on the previous version? The new version has a few different scanning tests so could be longer but 6 hrs seems a tad long.
You did not by chance have Scan using minimal computer resources set?
You think yours takes a long time. I have mine start at 10pm every Saturday night it used to finish around 3 in the morning. Over the last few months it takes longer. It is now 08:54 GMT Sunday morning and it only 96% done:eek: I do have 2 hard drives C with 120 Gb with 29Gb used and F with 320Gb with 228 Gb used. F is just storage Photos, music, downloads and backups, no running programs windows and everything else is on the C.
